What is a facial oil?
Facial oils are often formulated with botanical and herbal ingredients. At Kiehl’s, our facial oils are infused with distilled botanicals and herbal concentrates. These efficacious oils provide benefits to skin’s appearance while helping to seal in moisture. Look for the best facial oil for you to revitalize, restore or calm skin.
When should you apply a facial oil?
Apply a facial oil morning and night. During the day, apply a facial oil after cleansing, and a serum if you use one. After your oil, smooth on a moisturizer and sunscreen. At night, apply a facial oil after a facial serum and before a moisturizer. If you are using a facial serum and a facial oil, apply the serum first.
How do you use a facial oil?
After cleansing and toning skin and applying a facial serum, apply 2-3 drops of facial oil into hands. Gently press fingertips to cheeks, forehead and chin to evenly distribute before massaging into skin. Facial oils can be worn alone or under a moisturizer.
What is the difference between a facial oil and a serum?
Both serums and facial oils tend to have a high concentration of active ingredients, but serums are often lightweight formulas that penetrate skin easily while facial oils tend to leave more residue on skin. Kiehl’s facial oils are formulated with botanical and herbal oils which help improve skin’s appearance while providing hydration. If you are using both a serum and a facial oil, apply the serum first before pressing on the facial oil.
